Where the Rubbers Meet the Road to Rome: Rick Warren Willing to Go to Jail in Support of Catholic Stance on Obama Mandate
Rick Warren took a break from humblebragging on his Twitter page last week to say he would go to jail before caving to President Barack Obama's mandate that employers with religious affiliations -- such as Catholic hospitals -- cover contraceptives in their health insurance plans.
We're not sure where Jehovah mentions government health care requirements in Scripture, but give credit to Rick for pulling a Bible verse out of context to support his politics. The verse he cites is where Saint Peter and the apostles tell opposing religious leaders that they would rather obey God than men.
